5" - 6" Wide Island Legs
Massive Island Leg (5" to 6" Wide)
While it might not be the best idea to super-size your lunch, up-sizing the legs on your kitchen island designs can sometimes add just the right appearance to your finished work. It's all a matter of staying in scale and big sized pieces - such as kitchen islands - can benefit from accents that reflect the scale of the piece. A large scale leg can also add both physical and visual heft and stability to an island piece. The appropriate amount of visual weight can make a piece more appealing.
|Here at Osborne Wood Products we assist you with your big scale work by offering more than fifty styles of large island legs turned from 5" or 6" square stock. When you consider that each of these designs is offered in more than ten wood types you are looking at over five hundred options from which to choose! In many cases the basic designs for these legs have been taken from some of our most popular leg designs. In some instances, however, we have designed a leg from scratch with the goal of creating a beautiful large leg specifically for use on large pieces. Our large designs can be roughly placed into three categories. A number of the designs might be considered simplified turnings which means they are essentially rounded legs with slight tapers and very little additional ornamentation. These styles most often terminate on block or simple bun feet. The next category would include rounded legs with more frequent use of convex and concave turnings. These designs include additional rings and the terminating feet are more defined than the simpler designs. The final category would include rounded legs with heavier design articulationssuch as rope turning, fluting or reeded legs. Current kitchen design often includes the use of legs in a variety of ways. For example, some island pieces will terminate with a protruding ledge. By supporting the ledge with legs, the cabinetmaker can create the appearance of a table adjacent to the island itself. The visual conceit of a table can be further embellished by embedding legs or half legs at the point where the "table" meets the island. Embedding legs at the four corners of an island piece is also a clever way to create the appearance of a free standing piece of furniture out of a built-in cabinet.
